I’m on Debian Jesse and like eclipse, but node-inspector seems the most promising.
This seems to work like a dream, although I have not tried using the debug features yet. I have just run the demo_app from within the debug console and it seems to work great
You’ll need Chrome installed first.
npm install -g node-inspector
eclipse is good for browsing the source, but not working for debugging so far.
I’ve installed nodeclipse within eclipse
On the command line you seem to need to run this:
node --debug-brk tasks/start.js
Then in eclipse you right-click on start.js and choose Debug As > Node Application
I quickly get an error in the console and the code is not running. So, this doesn’t work for me yet.
